Unionists protest over privatisation
In a slap in the face to workers who may not have a job next year, Premier Mike Baird will be hosting a $175 fundraising lunch in Newcastle.
Workers whose jobs are at imminent risk as a result of the State Government’s move to privatise essential services in Newcastle are calling on the Premier to meet with them when he visits the region on 1 December.
Many of the workers directly affected can’t afford to splash out $175 for a ticket to hear the Premier speak about his plans for the region. We’re hoping he’ll take the time to come outside and speak to the community about his decisions
Coming up to Christmas, there are over 5000 workers in Newcastle who don’t know whether they’ll have a job next year. The stress that places on families is incomprehensible.
The workers will be part of a community rally at midday on December 1 being held at Civic Park.
